GamingBolt takes an indepth look in to several exclusive and multiplatform games hitting the Xbox 360.
Only Games Im Excited About In 2011 Are Hitman 5, Forza 4, La Noire & Batman AC
FINALLY, theres another mofo who wants Hitman V, its the game i want above ALL others, i also REALLY want Deus Ex 3, L.A Noire and Rage Edit: i know buddy its insane to even think what the next Hitmans games going to be like, David Bateson (dude who voices 47) said he saw some concept art for Hitman V recently and explained it was more art then concept, meanin you could put it in sum gallery and charge people to see it, and Hitman V will more than likely hav online multiplayer, CANT WAIT! +1 to you mofo :-)
Hitman Blood Money Was Awesome & That Game Was Released In 2006 When Developers Knew Very Little About The Potential Of These Consoles, Now Its 2011 & They Can Truly Make The Game Realistic
Wait, Hitman was confirmed? I don't know guys... Hitman is one of the better Thief type spinoff's, but seing what happened to Splinter Cell, Resident Evil, and others... It seems that games are no longer staying true to their souls. I'd love an actual slow paced Hitman, which had a damn near infinite ways of killing your target. But I'm afraid they would turn it into a shooter somehow with a guy having tribal tattoos...
I know many PS3 fanboys will all say many of those games are multiplatform, so they don't count, etc. But thats' like saying if they're multiplatform, they're gone from the Xbox. Those games on that list are looking amazing IMO, available on PS3 or not. Gamers shouldn't care if a game is multiplatform or not, a good game is a good game. And yeah the quantity of Xbox exclusives there are higher on PS3, and yet my lists are pretty equal Xbox- Gears of War 3 Forza Motorsport 4 Kingdoms Steel Batallion PS3- Killzone 3 LittleBig Planet 2 The Last Guardian Uncharted 3 Twisted Metal Infamous 2
The lists are pretty equal when you gimp the PS3 lineup as you just did.
It's funny how 360 fans used to brag about all the exclusives they had. Now they're reduced to this.
I own both but your list only really helps the PS3. Plus, Socom 4 is looking good, oh Resistance 3...... alas your list is not complete.
My Problem with this article is that it boast that the 360 will have a great year and then list alot of multiplats... that tist shows it will be a great year for ALL platforms! not JUST the 360! Thats like the Steelers winning the superbowl and only HALF the team gets a ring!
So now games like 'steel battalion' and 'kingdoms' (which we know nothing about) are being compared to the likes of UC3 and KZ3??? Rather desperate it seems...
You guys do realize that those are the exclusives that I wanted, right? There are 20+ exclusives for PS3, but that list is the only one that interests me. Btw, I'm not an Xbox fanboy. I don't brag about exclusive games. I play both systems actually. What I wanted to point out that a game is a game, exclusive or not. And Im not saying that UC3 and KZ3 are equal to Steel Batallion or Kingdoms since I haven't seen enough info on them, them, but those games greatly interest me too... Since Crytek is a quality developer, and judging from concept art, it looks interesting. Steel Batallion is an old franchise, and Im curious to how they will incorporate http://www.ataristoteles.co... to http://t3.gstatic.com/image... Sorry if you misread my post. @Below I agree that the PS3 has a stronger lineup this year, but people act as if the Xbox has no games to play and is doomed to fail; while as the average xbox owner will have plenty to play. That's all I was trying to say.
Add these to the Ps3 list and look at it again. Yakuza 4 Sorcery MLB The Show Socom 4 PSP 2!!! So as you can see just the games you forgot to mention for the Ps3 equals the amount of exclusives known for the 360 this year. I fail to see how the lists are equal. Only blind fans can agree with that. They are both good consoles and have good games but it's obvious which as the stronger lineup this year.
My list would go like this and keep in mind that I’m putting more multiplats on the PS3 because well its free to play online and I don’t want to pay Xlive and everybody that says Xlive is better, it’s the same thing stop fooling yourselves. Xbox- Gears 3 (is a beast of a game) Forza Motorsport 4 Rage Brink PS3- Killzone 3 LBP 2 The Last Guardain Uncharted 3 Infamous 2 Resistance 3 FF13vs Crysis 2 Batman: Arkham City The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Bulletstorm Mass Effect 3 MvsC3 Homefront Dead Space 2
Well considering two games on that list nothing is even known about not to mention one is probably on rails so really in terms of great exclusives, you're left with just Gears 3 and Forza 4. To be fair gears 3 is my most anticipated game for this year but this is going to be a terrible year for the 360 in terms of exclusives.
since kingdoms is still just a codename, i doubt it will come out next year.
I hate to be "that guy," Noob sessions, but your PS3 section of the list is missing Resistance 3 Motorstorm: Apocalypse Yakuza 4 Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One SOCOM 4 Free Realms (surprisingly enjoyable, and geared towards a younger audience) DC Universe Online (released, and really fun) Team Ico Collection (many PS fans haven't played these two amazing titles, and getting to enjoy them in HD is awesome) Disgaea 4 Twisted Metal White Knight Chronicles 2 Nino Kuni I'm just saying, your list is rather incomplete for the PS3 side, and I didn't bother to list PSN titles like Explodemon, Journey, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, Pixel Junk Shooter 2, About A Blob, and Sideway. All of the titles I listed are coming from quality, talented developers known to make awesome games. Level 5, Insomniac, Evolution Studios, Team Ico, Zipper Interactive, etc. I'm not just padding the list with titles, these games are looking awesome, and coming from veteran developers. Most of the 360 titles this year are still in the code name stage, or they are Kinect titles. I left out the MOVE titles on the PS3 from my list, and yet there are still enough PS3 exclusives to have a major release every month of the year, and then some still left over. The truth is that Sony has 19 first party, and 11 2nd party studios, all working on PlayStation 3 exclusives. Microsoft simply can't compete with that amount of developers on a blow by blow, exclusive for exclusive battle. They have 7 or 8 first AND second party studios total. No matter how you slice it, 30 is more than 8, and 30 developers will ALWAYS be able to make more games than 8 developers. Of course your list won't seem so bad for the 360 when you exclude 50% of the quality PS3 exclusives hitting this year. Oh, and I don't think the Xbox 360 is doomed to fail, I just think that, as a gamer that would consider himself to be pretty hardcore, the 360 is lacking in many hardcore titles, while focusing on an overabundance of Kinect titles. As a non-fan of Forza and Gears of War, my outlook on the 360 this year is looking bleak, with XBLA looking to be the only reason I'll be excited for my 360 this year, as the XBLA line-up, as always, is looking really good. As for core, retail games, there's not much out there besides some Code Name titles, and titles without a release date/window. Sony has been announcing release dates for their titles left and right this year. The only other release dates I'm really waiting for is inFAMOUS 2, Twisted Metal, and The Last Guardian. I'm sure they'll be coming soon.
@Figboy Very mature response. I know that overall, the PS3 has a better exclusive line up when compared to Xbox'. I guess I should've emphasized in my post that the list comes from my personal preference. But what I was also trying to get out was that Xbox's library as a whole is still very good this year, regardless of exclusive games or not, and people try to disprove that at times, claiming that exclusives are what should really matter. Obviously if you were to choose in 2011, which console to buy, and you had to bias over the other, I would say purchase a PS3 because it has multiplatform and more exclusive games over the Xbox, but Xbox only-owners will still have a good year IMO. I DO wish MS had more exclusive games coming though, just so that more games were made on the Xbox.
hitman 5 is vaporware lots of www wispers but nothing for pics/vids been awhile sense edios made a triple a game i hope hitman 5 wont be like k&L.
@NoobSessions 2011 PS3 core exclusive list: -little big planet 2 (1/18) -killzone 3 (2/22) -MLB The Show (3/8) -yakuza 4 (3/15) -PS Move Heroes (3/22) -Motorstorm Apocalypse (4/12) -Socom 4 (april) -ICO/SOTC HD collection -Journey -Ratcher and Clank All For One -Sorcery -Infamous 2 -White Knight Chronicles 2 -Ni No Kuni -Resistance 3 (9/6) -Uncharted 3 (11/1) -The Last Guardian (holidays 2011) -Twisted Metal (holidays 2011) (please note how I'm leaving out games like DC Universe Online, The Agency and Final Fantasy 14 because they're not exclusives because they have PC versions) 360 2011 core exclusive list -Gears of War 3 (fall 2011) -Forza 4 (in both list the ones with no dates are TBA2011, but at some point they were announced for 2011, Crytek's Kingdoms was never given a release date or window, steel batallion is casual kinect game)
It's the same thing year after year.. All the over-hype PS3 owns the year blah blah and then we end up with about the same releases. But alas, there is always a large group of N4G who run their mouth and then up with a foot in it by the end. Look at 2010! TBH not even sure why YET AGAIN this place cannot have a 360 only article without it being trolled with a bunch of Sony employees. Seriously, this is about the Xbox not a fuckin thing to do with Sony. Goto the other 100 cheerleading articles that pertain to Sony.
it was a list of games he wanted, i have a ps3 and will get 3-4 exclusives this year, the ones that interest me. The last guardian (prob 2012) ffvs13 (prob 2012) uncharted 3 white knight 2 (prob 2012) and for 360 gears 3 steel batallion if good kingdoms (prob 2012) all multis dead space 2 skyrim 2 worlds 2 dungean siege 3 dragon age 2 bioshock infinite (2012?) exc so my 360 will see many more games even though the ps3 has more exclusives, buy whatever u like im not going to buy a bunch of games i wont enjoy because their exclusive, i rent stuff like that.
Okay...seriously?! It is best for the PS3 for this year...
OH my god. What? No.
2 exclusives :/ on that list
This Article claims Grand Turishmo has been “OUT DONE” by Fortza 2???? That is opionion not fact! If you like arcade style racing and customization then fortza is for you… But HARDCORE RACING FANS will always choose GT5! any game with rewind is not a racing sim imo. Also the entire list is multiplats except 2 games…. this should be a great game gamers not just the 360 ! How can you boast about the 350 when most of these games come out on other platforms? One could say that the PS3 exclusives destroy the entire list of games you have on that list.
agree (in b4 360 fanboy)
it should be good
E3 2011 is going to be insane, hopefully I can attend this year. That would be my dream come true.
You cant pull microsoft out of their s**t, they focused too much on Kinect
Is today April 1st? Must have missed it.
360's best year was 2007. In fact, that was the last good year it had.
Ur right..2007 was full of x360 exclusives(and time exclusives). Exclusives is what define consoles not motion controls and multi-platfrom games.
I actually agree. Mass Effect, Bioshock, Elder Scrolls, and too many more to list. I thought the PS3 had a great 2007 (then again, I'm one of the people that thought Resistance, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Ratchet, Uncharted, Unreal Tournament, and Virtua Fighter 5 were awesome games), but the 360 was coasting off of a year head start, and developers were in full swing. It was the golden boy of the industry from 2005-2008, but 2007 was its last truly great year in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, great games have hit the 360 since then, but nothing like the avalanche of awesome 360 exclusives back in 2007. It's kind of funny how now a lot of those franchises are available on the PS3 (Bioshock, Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect), and suddenly, people aren't talking them up as much as they used to. There was no end to the "HAW HAW, PS3 lost another EXCLUSIVE!!!" stories back in 2006, 2007, and 2008, but now things are downplayed and rational when a 360 exclusive moves to PS3 (like Mass Effect; arguably the 360's biggest exclusive franchise next to Gears of War and Halo). The gaming media is pretty despicable this generation with their hypocrisy and double standards, and lack of professionalism and integrity. No wonder mainstream journalists look down on the gaming media as "low class." They reinforce it every day with their shit articles and slanted reporting.
Lots of Kinect games....360 must be hardcore. /s
16/19 of them games are multi platform.... >_>
Wow Gears 3 was about the only one that is 360 only that I want, other then that the list is pretty weak for 360 (Meaning everything else can be played on other systems). I really hope they don't try to make another Halo to say "Hey we are better because we got Halo", because Bungie left an I feel the game will go downhill.
correct me if i am wrong but last i checked 343 industries was making a halo game.
That is my point about it going downhill.
im sorry but MS is depending to much on Halo. Seriously another halo this year would be 5 halo games this gen alone(4 if u dont count Wars). I mean damn youd see why bungie didnt want to do halo anymore, it gets tiresome, same way i hope ND takes a break from UC after part 3. Glad Guerilla is making a new IP also.
Halo has already gone downhill with Reach. Hopefully 343 studios can recapture what made halo so addictive because reach is just methodical and boring.
No Reach was pretty good, OSDT was ok but Firefight was about the only thing awesome about it and Halo 3 was ok.
Senden, how much of Reach have you played? I am not trying to say your opinion is wrong, it can't be, but I've played every Halo and I thought Reach was one of the best. What about it makes you say it's gone downhill? I think they added a lot, like the armor load outs, the new amimations were good, the physics are off the chain (as always), and I loved the graphical upgrade. I feel it is up there with the most fully developed and polished games ever made. Again I know we are all entitled to our own opinion, but when you don't give any reason why you feel that way it comes off as trolling.
Played about 40 hours roughly. Maybe it's a case of each to their own but I used to be able to play halo 3 mp for hours on end without getting bored and the time would fly by, I can barely play an hour of Reach without getting bored. I think a lot it is down to the maps. Only ones I enjoy are countdown and zealot and absolutely despise the cage and paradiso. Only thing which ruined it for me was the bloom.. it's a nice feature for a lot of people i'm sure but I just felt it didn't belong in a halo game.
Great year for housewives!
Yes it is. I don't care about exclusives so much. But there is so many multiplat games coming out this year. I'm happy.
Itll have a fine year because of multiplatform, but honestly it need exclusives if anyones going to take its lineup as seriously as PS3s this year.
I don't think no matter what they do, that they could beat PS3's lineup for 2011. They can pull out the big guns for 2012. This year is done. And before you call me a ps3 fanboy, know that I only own a 360. I just know this is ps3s year.
I agree, there is no way anyone could seriously say that Sony's exclusive lineup is killing the competition this year. I also have to add, with all the multi-plats coming out this year, MS couldn't have picked a better year to have a weak exclusive line up. I think the people on this site blow the exclusive thing WAY out of proportion. The attitude that exclusive games are the only ones worth buying, is just about exclusive to this site. I've never run across anyone outside N4G that makes such a big deal out of this stuff. While I understand y'all are happy to be getting the most games one your console this year I don't think any 360 only owner has anything to worry about. Hell I’ve already bought 2 games for my 360 this year and it's still January. No one on any platform is going to be left out in 2011, and to say the 360 is going to die out because of the small amount of exclusive this year SO FAR is just ignorant.
PS3 Only List Of Coming Games: Killzone 3 Little Big Planet 2 (Just to throw it in their) Trinity:Souls Of Zill O'll Hyperdimension Neptunia Ar Tonelico Qoga Yakuza 4 Playstation Move Heroes Sorcery Top Gun Hybrid & Bluray Movie Motorstorm Apocalypse Socom 4 Infamous 2 Resistance 3 Uncharted 3 Yeah let me know when 360 has a list like that before E3.
Off Topic troll is troll! -minus bubbles What a crap list and has no place in here.
Wait a minute. I think everyone is confused. Number of exclusives does not determine how successful a console is within a certain year. So looking at 360s small exclusive list doesnt mean they will have bad sales. All the multiplat games will still sell and probably very well. So technically, it could be the best year, sale wise. These are some good games on here, regardless if multi or exclusive.
If that was the case, then everyone should buy those games for PC. They be cheaper and look better.
I don't disagree. I'm just confused how some people say that looks like a bad list because of the lack of exclusives. So now all those games on there are bad because they will be on mutiple platforms? Im not seeing the logic. I see alot of great games on there and owners of both consoles should be happy.
It's more of a point of great games. It's always been about the exclusives.. as multiplatform games are a given so what's left is what makes the console you play special and what extra incentives you have for owning said console and sony will be laughing all the way to E3 when you compare lists. In a lot of ways it's like saying "hey look at what makes it a great year for the 360. Now take what looks good for the 360 then add all these extra great games and that's just how great of a year it is for the ps3."
Best year for the 360, this is a joke. Title should be changed to A look at Gaming in 2011 - 360's worse year.
So what you are saying is all those games are bad? Looks like a good list to me. So congrats to both PS3 and 360 owners on some good multiplats. We all win this year.
Man there's no point in trying to inject logic into these conversations. It's PS3 or die to these guy's and that’s just the way it is. I agree with you, but unfortunately we are the minority here on good ol' N4G. I know my 360 will be getting a lot of play this year, along with my PS3 and Wii. I think this is the best year of gaming I’ve seen ever and I’ve been playing since the Atari 2600.
This article is focusing on the 360 only. Yes we all know that the ps3 has all these exclusives, we get reminded about that in nearly every article now. But they were talking about the games coming to the 360 and it looks like a pretty awesome list. My favorite games this gen are multi-plat, (Just Cause 2 and Borderlands). I will even admit that I played Just Cause 2 on my ps3 because you can record up to 30 minutes at a time of your gameplay
I own a 360 and it is quite easy to see that PS3 has way more quality exlusives this year. With that being said Gears3 will be awesome and the multiplats look amazing - don't remember a gaming year i've been more excited about than 2011
How is Forza 4 and Gears of War 2 a strong line up?
How is one sentence a strong comment? I think you missed a few games that are coming out this year. It doesn’t say "A Look At Gaming In 2011- 360′s Best EXCLUSIVE Year". There are a whole lot of games coming out for the 360 this year. I've asked you before, and I'm going to ask again. Why do you come into these articles? You don't have a 360 and you never will. Why aren’t you playing one of the million PS3 exclusive now instead of trolling 360 news? Why are any of the PS3 Trolls in this article instead of playing the world’s best exclusives? There are so many coming out this year, how do any of you have time to troll 360 news? Go play you enormous line up of exclusives and leave us 360 fans to our tears.
As Microsoft said. "2011 is the year of kinect" “As for the future, we’ve got a brilliant line-up for 2011 but it’s ultimately all about Kinect. Kinect is going to blow people’s minds. They’re [already] buying it, but we’ve got a line-up of Kinect games that will blow people away.” http://www.gamepur.com/news...
some exclusives or some kinect exclusives? :)
